    Pickup Bridge: GuitarHeads HEX-7
    Pickup Neck: GuitarHeads HEX-7
    Controls layout: Volume, Tone, 3-way Switch

    What are your thoughts on the guitarheads pickups? I've seen them all over ebay but never caved and bought a set.

    I like it, they have a litlle high output, but very nice for metal ... I'll record a video soon and I can show it here. With push pull I put, for me it is great!

    I remember scaring the shit out of my parents trying to recreate this finish. They thought I'd set the house on fire. :rofl:
